10 – Provision reliable storage for IoT data that has been sent to the cloud

How do you ensure that data will reach a reliable resting point before compute operations are performed? IoT devices send a lot of small messages with no guarantee of delivery order. This data might not be immediately useful, but the data volume is typically low enough to economically store against a future need. It will be beneficial to store the data so that the data can processed in order. Stored data can be reprocessed as new requirements are developed.

Follow the best practices and check if your workload is well-architected.

ID Priority Best Practice
BP 10.1 Required Store data before processing
BP 10.2 Highly Recommended Have mechanisms in place to compensate when the primary storage location is unavailable
